2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 (NKJV) 16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ brings comfort and consolation to our hearts. How does He do this? Jesus does this through His Word. The Word of God will establish us in every good word and work. My friends, the study of God’s Word will lead to the work of the Lord. The Word of God comforts us and edifies us. We are to be rooted and grounded in God’s Word, so that we are not lead away from the truth by every false doctrine that tickles our ears. Our minds and hearts are to be centered on Christ, God the Son, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead, the Trinity, Elohim. Being rooted in the Word of God will keep us from going out after every new trend of the day. We need to be established in the faith by studying the Word of God. The Word of God will keep us, and it will lead us to do the work of God. My friends, if you say you love God and look forward to Christ’s return, but you do not study the Word of God, then you are only lying to yourself and others. If you really believe that Christ is coming soon, then you will be busy working for Him. We all will have to give an account to Christ one day, so we all ought to be busy working for Him today. We need to be productive Christians while we wait for Christ’s return. This is the greatest proof that we believe in Christ’s return.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
